X-SCAPE AT NSA (article first published : 1999-07-22)

X-scape is an exhibition of photography and attendant workshops which forms part of Shuttle 99, a Nordic/South African exchange programme which sees photographic exhibitions at NSA, the BAT Centre, Durban Art Gallery and the African Art Centre. The NSA/Durban Centre for Photography was chosen as the South African partner to manage and co-ordinate the photography component of Shuttle 99, namely X-scape.

Four workshops (three in Durban and one in Helsinki) for South African and Nordic photographers generated a collaborative body of photographs. These, together with South African national street photography workshops, as well as commissioned work and invited exhibitors have created an exciting and diverse photographic exhibition curated by the NSA Gallery, the Durban Centre for Photography and the Finnish Museum of Photography.

X-scape is the “theme” of the exhibitions. Photographers were encouraged to ‘replace’ X with ideas such as (land)scape, (city)scape, (mind)scape. What emerged is an extraordinary and diverse range of insights into the cultural and geographic landscape of the South African milieu.

The exhibition launches at the NSA Galleries, the Menzi Mchunu Gallery at the Bat Centre and the Clermont Library on August 8 at 16h00. An innovative addition to X-scape is an outdoor exhibition of posters and electronic billboards. X-scape then travels to the Bensusan Museum of Photography in Johannesburg to run from September 5 to 26. Elements of the exhibition will then travel to the Finnish Museum of Photography where it will be exhibited and then remain in their permanent collection.
